HAIR & SKIN
Experience true food for your hair and skin with real, traditionally crafted soap. Our artisan shampoo bars are handmade with carefully curated local ingredients – proudly sourced from small family farms and homegrown here in the USA. What we can’t source locally, we can assure are of the highest quality: certified organic, minimally processed, and fair-trade ingredients to feed your hair and skin from the outside-in.
Our All-In-One Shampoo – Body – Shaving soap bars will work wonders for any hair type when used correctly and regularly (read directions here).
Perfect for regular body washing, face washing, and shaving as well, explained below.
Our ingredients are LOW on the comedogenic scale – so your pores are nourished and cleansed, but never clogged.
Pasture-Raised, Pure, Hand-Rendered Lard feeds your hair and skin extra-nourishing fatty acids and Vitamin D3 for reducing frizz and extra moisturization. Lard has been used in haircare since medieval times for hair growth and hair health management. Our lard is carefully hand-rendered to keep its precious rare nutrients in-tact at low temperatures.

Local, Raw, Farm-Fresh, Grass-fed, Hand-Cultured Buttermilk to feed your hair the perfect food – high in essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. The famously beautiful Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was a wise proponent, bathing in fresh buttermilk daily. Learn more here
Certified Organic Babassu Oil provides extra foamy lather to build mounds of thick bubbles. This makes cleansing your hair an easy task without using pore-clogging palm or coconut oils. Babassu oil also helps maintain the hardness of your shampoo soap while in use and makes the bar last as long as possible in wet environments.
Certified Organic, Cold-Pressed, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil has been used for thousands of years to make the best soaps in the world and is one of the major components of our shampoo bars. Olive oil soap provides a rich, smooth, silky shine to hair shafts while also retaining a mild cleanse. Olive oil is unique in that it’s very moisturizing, but not too heavy.
Certified Organic, Hexane-Free Castor Oil has been used for centuries to help heal damaged skin while also restoring new hair growth. Also known as the “Palm of Christ”, its many priceless uses have yet to be overshadowed by any other known oil. Castor oil also helps to provide a thick, robust lather and strengthens the hair shafts.
Certified Organic Golden Jojoba Oil is actually a type of liquid plant wax that is proposed to be very similar to our skin’s sebum. Jojoba oil has been very useful for haircare professionals, lending extra shine, strength, and manageability to hair health.
Abyssinian Oil is very similar to Argan oil, but shown to be better in some ways. From scientific studies, Abyssinian has been shown to provide superior protection against hair breakage and heat damage in professional salon settings. Shine and manageability are also markedly improved when incorporating Abyssinian oil into one’s haircare routine.
Kaolin Clay helps detox your hair from the daily grime and air pollution from modern day living while also soothing the scalp. This natural earthen mineral assists with dandruff and encourages hair growth as well. For shaving, it lends an extra-silky smooth experience, but if a nick does occur – it helps stop and repair bleeding quickly. Just lather our soap on the area you need to shave and shave as you would normally.
Don’t settle for anything less than the absolute best for your hair and skin! We stand by our guarantee of satisfaction after a decade of making haircare and skincare products. If you do have any issues, we are always happy to help make it right.

The washing process and the feel of a good shampoo soap wash is very different from regular chemical poos. Most beginners need to read all the details of the instructions and practice multiple times in order to get it perfect. Remember, we are working for a lifetime of healthier hair, that may take a little effort on the rookie’s end!
Beginners: please purchase 3 (THREE) shampoo bars to give our shampoo a good shot, preferably with our unscented buttercream shampoo soap for first-timers as a clean slate so you know how your hair does with our basic formula. Any other additives may effect some hair types, which is why we recommend our basic formula for beginners. Your first 1-2 bars will go by much faster due to the adjustment period. Please keep reading.
Most experienced users only need an average of 2 shampoo soap bars every 30 days.
Also, go ahead and grab a conditioner bar-to-liquid (half size unscented), just in case you may need one sometime down the road… Most happily discover that they need a lot less conditioner when using our nourishing shampoo soaps! So it is wise to only try the conditioner after your shampoo adjustment period: if you are getting a good cleanse after the shampoo wash (no soap residues), but just need more moisture and manageability in some areas, then the conditioner would be a great addition to your washing routine. Please keep in mind that your conditioning needs may differ using different shampoo soaps. Try to skip the conditioner when trying any new shampoo soap for the first time until you determine if you need some after drying. Do not over apply the conditioner (bar or liquid) in places where you may not need it with our nourishing shampoo soaps, or else your hair may feel heavy unnecessarily.
A HALF SIZE conditioner bar will last most users up to 6 shampoo soap bars (or 3 months), while a FULL SIZE conditioner bar will last most users up to 12 shampoo soap bars (or up to 6 months).
Hair Growth Our shampoo bars tend to cause faster and thicker hair growth. As an effect, more frequent colorings or treatments may be needed for treated hair.
Colored & Treated Hair Our shampoo bars tend to have no effect on the shade of permanently colored hair or texture treatments. However, semi or demi-permanent hair-colorings or texture treatments can wash out faster due to the vigorous washing method required for a natural shampoo soap lather. We ask these customers to weigh the benefit of healthier, thicker and faster-growing hair with their more frequent semi-permanent hair treatments.
Curly & Textured Hair Our shampoo bars are sulfate-free and totally natural, therefore they will strengthen the natural disulfide bonds in your hair, which will bring out your natural hair texture. Your natural hair texture usually has more volume, curl and definition than what you are used to while using detergent or sulfate-base haircare products.
Healthier & Cleaner Our shampoo bars help reduce the waste of water transport, plastic containers, and dispensers that are so often chosen for convenience with liquid conditioners and shampoos. It often takes more time and effort to use natural shampoo bars, but it’s well worth it in the end. Not only do you end up with clean and naturally nourished hair, you also end up with a cleaner environment!
We recommend washing 2 times per day in the beginning (first time users) until you have no detox symptoms. If you don’t have any detox symptoms, that’s great! Sometimes these symptoms are just a result of not properly washing (not applying and lathering enough), which causes soap residue in certain places and feels much like the detox symptoms. Here is our article about how to wash properly: https://perma-earth.com/directions/soap-directions/
So it can take a beginner as little as 7-10 days* (14-20 washes*) to go through 1 full size (3.0-3.5 ounce) shampoo soap. Once the new user has adjusted, they often start to go every 1-2 days* without washing, and finally up to washing only once a week* in some cases. Therefore, once a user has become experienced and comfortable with properly using shampoo soaps, 1 shampoo soap bar can last one user up to 1 to 3 months* if they only use it for washing their hair and they store it properly (covered in directions link above).
*Hair length, thickness, texture, and level of oil/grease/dirt to cleanse will affect this number. The longer, thicker, dirtier, and more textured your hair is, the faster you will use the shampoo soaps.
Due to the natural and handcrafted quality of our products and ingredients, we cannot guarantee exact replicas of texture, scent or feel of every batch.
Since we use local, hand-processed animal products and other nature-based ingredients, our batches fully depend on quality of processing, time of year, and what the nutrition source was in that season. Please do not expect big business chemical results from our small, local, and natural business.

We are open to any suggestions to improve our policies with respect to the consumers (all of you) as well as the manufacturers (all of us). We ask that you please review our small business policies before purchasing. As a health-centered bath and body company, we are consistently working towards giving others the desire and ability to go back to more traditional body-care products for the long-term benefits. Please keep in mind that these policies were put into place to protect all parties involved from presumptuous exploitations. These policies exist to keep ourselves in-tact so that we can always supply our loyal customers with products inspired by historical lifestyles and modern-day advancements infused with innovative creativity.

A non-negotiable 3% handling fee which includes required shipping insurance is now automatically added to every order during checkout for coverage in cases of lost or damaged packages (please see full policies for all details on these processes). This is due to the fact that postal services have decreased in quality to the point of where we need to physically drive and drop off the packages at the counter to get a receipt for verification as the postal service no longer verifies over five (5) package pickups from any business throughout our state of Indiana (and in other states as well). The postal services are also now requiring the receiver to bring in entire damaged package for any item damage claims, handing them over to the postal service for further inspection. We feel this is unreasonable for all parties, so instead we can simply replace/refund those instances with these fees. Also if a package is finally ruled as lost (which has become more common everywhere) we will be able to replace/refund those with a swiftness that postal claim processes do not allow. We automatically cover any item that is damaged during transit with photo proof within 7 days of postal delivery confirmation on tracking. If a product is defective we will gladly refund or replace with your proof – this is up to our discretion according to our shop refund policies.
We gladly accept returns on any unused items within 30 days of purchase or delivery, in which the return costs must be covered by the customer and may be subject to a -10% restock fee. Please note that it is up to our discretion on whether or not the item is returned in acceptable condition: we will communicate with you if not to our standards when we receive the return(s). Any return shipping costs are covered by the customer if returning an unused and non-defective item. We cannot refund any shipping costs once the order has been shipped unless something happens to the package such as a damage or a loss. We are not liable for any unpaid customs fees, duty taxes, or postal rejections for international orders. If a package or item is returned to us in acceptable condition, we will issue a refund subject to a -10% restocking fee. All returns are refunded as store credit in the form of a coupon code sent to the email address associated with the order. We cannot accept online order exchanges with unused returns.
You may cancel your order in your account orders before the order has been processed to ship and before 24 hours from time of order. Please note that it can take us only minutes to pull, pack, and ship your order during peak business hours if we are not backed up. These cancellations are subject to a -10% cancellation fee, you may contact us by calling 812 414 9735 to cancel your order for a chance for a full refund if we have not pulled the order yet.
